Seashore Eyewitness film to be shown August 14
The Tuesday, August 14, 2018 meeting of the Florida Native Plant Society features a free showing of the film “Seashore Eyewitness”. From crashing waves and blasting winds to placid tide pools, discover what makes our coastlines so alluring to the masses of wildlife and humans who gather there. Discover the fascinating world of the seashore along with its strange and beautiful creatures and their fascinating life cycles.
Stunning real-life photographs of lobsters, tide pools, fish, seals, seabirds, and more, offer a unique “eyewitness” view of life on the seashore. See a starfish on the move, how a sea urchin disguises itself, a sea anemone catch a prawn, the inhabitants of a tide pool, and fish that change color. Learn how a limpet grips the rock, how a crab grows a new leg, how a prawn becomes invisible, how seabirds catch fish, and how a sea otter sleeps at sea. Discover how long seaweed can grow, and why hermit crabs live in second hand shells; learn about clams that bore holes in solid rock, where a puffin lays its eggs, and much more!
